Roxana I. Malene
Senior Industrial Contracts Officer, Office of Technology Licensing (OTL)
BioIn 2023, I joined Stanford University’s Industrial Contracts Office as a Senior Officer. As a seasoned negotiator, I focus on growth, community and collaboration, results and creating long-lasting partnerships.
A native of Romania, I immigrated in the U.S. in 2002. Later, I attended Northwestern University to explore my interest in Psychology, Neuroscience, and Computational Linguistics, and then Case Western Reserve University for Law School. I returned to Chicago where I litigated on behalf of the city and then sought justice for the unlawfully incarcerated victims of Jon Burge, as an attorney with the Illinois Torture Inquiry and Relief Commission. In 2017, I pursued my interest in transactional law and joined Northwestern’s team of contracts officers in the university’s office for sponsored research where I discovered my passion for research administration. I later joined The University of Chicago’s central research administration team to lead the team of industry contracts, create the necessary infrastructure and expand engagement with corporations interested in funding the research of brilliant faculty and partnering with the university.
Fun fact: my first visit to a university campus in the U.S. was at the majestic Stanford University. Needless to say, I am happy to return and be part of the Stanford community!
